The Mantle at Halloween

The mantle is the place for Halloween It holds the black and orange candles Plus a mirror to reflect everything seen There is really enough for you to handle It holds the black and orange candles Bats come out and dangle by a string There is really enough for you to handle It’s just the right amount of everything Bats come out and dangle by a string Two pumpkins are lit from the inside It’s just the right amount of everything They all combine for fear of the outside Two pumpkins are lit from the inside Plus a mirror to reflect everything seen They all combine for fear of the outside The mantle is the place for Halloween
